Water is a basic necessity of life. Sambazah – Zhob in Balochistan is the area where majority of the people have no direct access to water. Water is available under the ground yet mostly it is brackish and not fit for human consumption. Absence of electricity adds more misery to the lives of local residents. Poverty does not allow people to utilize alternate water and electricity solutions such as solar pumps and solar energy.
In Union Council Sambazah, there are 22 primary and middle schools. Unfortunately there is no electricity in the school buildings. In 11 Schools, water is partially available and in the remaining schools there is no water facility. Infrastructure of schools building is in too poor condition and requires urgent maintenance. There are toilets but of no use due to unavailability of water. Health and Hygiene condition of the residents of Sambazah deteriorates day by day.
For promoting education, Health and WASH conditions in the area, RAHMA has started rehabilitating schools and ensures availability of water through solar pump. Moreover utilizing the generated energy from solar panels, electricity will be provided to schools.
Here are the glimpse of RAHMA’s work in Union Council Sambazah – District Zhob.
